  1. Chinese OEM + Android = Not Safe to Use.

    1. Android is very safe to use. It is in fact more secure than iPhone. Because I can install the most secure browsers on it. Apple blocks such apps for being too secure.

      Android means security focused on the user's needs. Apple mean security focused on the personal preferences of a few people in Cupertino... Or even the whims of the dictators in China.

      Chinese manufacturer? Not very much.

  2. Sweet phone for the year 2010


  3. The Alcatel "Hey, we're better than BLU and ZTE" market niche is not a recipe for great success.

    It's like Plymouth...."At least we're not as bad as a Yugo, I mean, come on!!!"

  4. ZTE has better offerings than Al-qatel's fourth world burners.

  5. AT&T Prepaid wants too much for their phones. Wait til this goes on sale for the holidays for around $15.
